    They won't send photos. You have to go to the car yard. As an added bonus, you get to sit around ALL day while the 'finalise' the paperwork. ALL DAY.

    Urgh, I detest them. My silly fault for going through them. Thank goodness that's all in the past and we have an even better car now

    Great news about Mercedes though. Sounds like a fantastic way to go. As an existing customer they should look after you

    Terrible company. I was approved a few years ago for a loan and was ecstatic as my credit rating at the time was bad. They would not give me any details about the car whatsoever.. No make, model or value, just tried to send me to a dodgey car yard with promises of me driving away in my BRAND.NEW.CAR!!! They try to sugarcoat everything and make you feel like instead of asking questions you should just be grateful that they approved you at all.
    They rob desperate people. The car you end up with might be worth 5 grand but the "loan" that you actually repay is like 15- 20.
    They were so rude to me when I told them I'd changed my mind and no longer wanted their loan. The pushy car dealership they hooked me up with kept harrassing me, until DH rang him and told him to f@#% off!

    Steer well clear of them.

    Thank you so much everyone for your responses. I think you have helped me stay well clear of what could become a very bad choice!

    Well my mind is made up! We won't be going through them I don't think.

    I'm not about to travel on public transport with a 2yo that leaves at 5 am, to go get a car that we may not even see Or like?! Only to then be stranded 400kms away from home because I can guarentee we would miss the one returning service. No thanks!

    We have to wait till monday to find out how we have gone.

    I hate waiting!!

    Thank you everyone. Just an update... We have been conditionally approved with mercedes!

    Once we finish my contract they will help us out! They have said normaly they won't help anyone in our position (casual with some clink) but because we have such an outstanding record they will make an exception! (not one reminder or missed/late payment in 6yrs.)

    I'm getting a payout figure in the morning, and finalizing it!
